    Celebrate the Christmas and Winter Holidays with some educational activities. These are the perfect blend of fun, education, group work, STEM and Science. This time of year can be stressful for a teacher and these pre-planned activities will save you a lot of time searching and planning for the right activity.

    Candy Cane Science

    Use this Candy Candy Science Experiment as an interactive Science Lesson on observing the effects of various liquids on candy canes. The experiment helps students follow the Scientific Method and is really fun to watch as it changes. Students are engaged, having fun and love the idea of using the candy.

    This experiment is easy to set up and most likely you have all the ingredients already at home.

    STEM Gingerbread Houses

    Give your students the opportunity to build their own Gingerbread House using a select number of supplies. They will get to read about gingerbread houses, plan how to build one, build and then see how well it withstands in various conditions. I have done all the work for you, all you need to do is have parents bring the supplies (or you can) and your students will be in for an interactive and intriguing lesson.

    Other Included Activities

    Included are some coloring sheets and a directed draw reindeer activity.
